I happened to "google" Caroline as I am ready to mail Christmas cards. I am so sorry to learn that Caroline had passed but she is now with Dayle who she missed for those 7+ years. As I am a Boyer cousin, thru my mother, my husband and I had visited with Dayle and Caroline in Annadale many years ago while he was still working. Your Dad came into the Port of Houston many years ago also and we went to pick him up and spent the afternoon and evening with him until he had to return to the ship. We certainly enjoyed knowing them and corresponding with them each year.

My condolences to the family almost a year late, but glad I did find out.

May God Bless you and your family.

This candle represents the light you were in the lives of so many people during your lifetime.
You were loved & admired by everyone who met you & will be greatly missed, but your spirit will live on through them.
I know you & Dayle are thrilled to be together again, and picturing the two of you traveling the universe together for eternity warms my heart & makes me smile...

Mom, I have always considered myself very lucky to have parents that were always so involved with my life. You allowed me to learn, fail and succeed. Through the success and failures I always knew that you and Dad would always be there. I learned from that and tried to pass that on to my kids and hope they will continue to pass that on to their children. The greatest gift you always gave me was love. Both you and Pop will be missed by all of us but know that we will succeed because of your efforts. I Love You. Tell Pop Happy Birthday today. Love Duncan

Aunt Ki never had a bad thing to say about anyone. A remarkable feat for someone living past 80. I lived with she and Dale for a month after my college graduation, when I had no idea what to do with my life or how to make money to eat. They were both so kind to me. We were all lucky to have known her. Susan Dobmeyer

My dear sister Ki, who never learned or wanted to use a computer, would faint dead away with being posted on "google." She died perhaps at the right time after being a wonderful big sister. I loved her, I miss her, Hildy
